Brad Goreski, the nerd glass-, bow-tie-, suspender-wearing associate of super stylist Rachel Zoe, announced yesterday that he would be parting ways with his guru Oct. 1, according to People. The two say the split was amicable, and Zoe went on to explain: “He did this with such class and elegance. And I get it. I just told him, ‘I’m here for you always.’ I don’t want to hire somebody for the purpose of the show, we just got lucky. No one’s ever going to be Brad to me.” Goreski said he broke the news to Zoe a month ago after realizing now was the time to break out on his own.
No word yet on what Goreski will do next, but what I do know is, if there’s another season of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project to come, it’s going to have a bow-tie-shaped hole in it. This past season was already lacking without Taylor and the mostly mute Ashley and Jordan didn’t help, so it’s hard to imagine what will be compelling about the show besides shots of Zoe’s fabulousity.
Goreski’s next project should be somehow involve Zoe’s hair and makeup artist, Joey. Those two would shut it down, right? (You heard it here first!)
